Teeth Whitening

Discolourations or stains often make people feel unconfident about their smiles. Teeth whitening can restore your confidence and provide you with a beautiful, healthy-looking smile. The Dental Team knows that your smile can be one of your most vital assets, and we want to help you preserve it. Give us a call to talk about teeth whitening today.

Causes of Tooth Discolouration

Teeth whitening helps reduce stains and discolourations on teeth, and there are many different reasons teeth don’t stay white.

Food and Drinks

Coffee, soda, wines, and even certain fruits and vegetables can stain your teeth.

Tobacco

Many people experience discolouration due to smoking or chewing tobacco, and you may need teeth whitening more frequently if you’re trying to combat the effects of these habits. 

Disease and medication

Certain diseases can lead to tooth discolouration, but medications and treatments can also cause stains.

Poor dental hygiene

Not brushing or flossing adequately can allow plaque and other stain-producing substances to build up.

The Dental Team can help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile through teeth whitening services. Our offices have a friendly, welcoming vibe, and they use the latest teeth whitening technologies. Contact us to set up an appointment today.

What to Expect With Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening at the dentist’s office is similar to whitening your teeth at home, but it’s faster and more effective. The process can vary slightly, but typically, dentists work through these steps:

Preparing for Teeth Whitening

The dentist starts the process by inserting a lip retractor in your mouth to gain access to your teeth.

Protecting Your Gums

The dentist applies a protective gel to your gums and then cures the gel with a high-powered light. This creates a barrier that protects your gums from the whitening process.

Whitening the Teeth

The dentist provided a whitening gel to use at home containing hydrogen peroxide to break apart the stains on your teeth, and during the whitening process, they may apply and rinse off the whitening gel several times.

Teeth whitening can last anywhere from a few months to several years. Contact us today at The Dental Team if you have questions about this process or want to make an appointment.
